  • Today, the vast majority of Landings residents living in the Marshwood or Palmetto neighborhoods enter and exit the community via the Main Gate.
  • But the 1983 announcement that this gate was to be built became a very contentious issue! There were 1,020 homes in Marshwood and only a handful in Palmetto.
  • Was it fair to make Marshwood residents bear the brunt of the $25,000 in incremental cost required to operate one 24-hour and one 12-hour gate?
  • At the 1983 TLA Annual Meeting, Branigar presented a rationale that not only carried the day, but amused a previously skeptical crowd.

  • It’s The Landings’ 50th Anniversary, and part of the fun of celebrating is looking at all the positive changes over the years.

Green for Greens to raise funds for youth programming and scholarships
  • First Tee Savannah, part of a national, nonprofit organization that seamlessly integrates the game of golf with a life skills curriculum, is partnering with Front Door Produce this summer to raise funds for its youth programs and scholarships.
  • The fundraiser, Green for Greens, offers local residents the opportunity to purchase a box of seasonal fresh fruits and vegetables from farms in Southern Georgia, picked two days before delivery. Each box costs $30, and First Tee receives a portion of the proceeds to support its year-round youth development programs and camps.

  • On Tuesday, May 31, Security responded to Hathaway Lane for a report of a suspicious incident which occurred the previous evening.
  • The complainant advised that a vehicle had followed her through the Marshwood Gate and through the neighborhood.
  • Upon arriving home, the vehicle pulled into her neighbor’s driveway. After she entered her home, the vehicle then pulled into her driveway, sat for a few minutes, and left.
  • Officers identified the vehicle using ABDi’s entry logs and attempted to make contact with the owner but had negative results. Officers will continue trying to make contact with the vehicle’s owner.
